This ale's golden amber color only hints at its full-bodied flavor. Its sumptuous maltiness is tempered by a goodly amount of bitterness and a mouth-filling hop flavor. In order to finish our I.P.A. with a truly fresh hop bouquet, we dry hop this ale in the serving tank with both East Kent Goldings and Mount Hood hops.

On tap @ Steamworks. Golden pour with a white head. Quite piney and a bit herbal. Some grapefruit, melon, and orange peel. Light caramel and bready malt. Flavor is lightly sweet up front and fairly bitter on the back end. A lot of grapefruit and pine. Some fresh herbs and a bit of citrus peel. Slightly grassy as it warms.

On tap at the pub in Gastown. I see the ratings are crap, but I actually rather like it. Nice darker amber color, but can’t get much nose off it so far. Very crisp, refreshing and unusual hoppy character, with a bit of malt in the background. It’s an unusual hop variety it seems. Less citrus than some is about all I can say. Nice.
